(Nashville, Tenn. – May 16, 2017) – Singer/Songwriter Amber Hayes is releasing new music and marking a return to her small town, Southern roots, with latest single, “My Hometown,” to release on May 19. The pride and smile that comes across your face, when reflecting on where you grew up, “Hometown” achieves this heartwarming feeling expanding beyond a physical destination.
“I was raised in a very small town in Oklahoma and that was a big inspiration behind this song, and honestly a bunch of the songs that I write,” comments Hayes, “This song in particular focused on the reasons why you’d never want to leave your hometown, and why you’d end up returning to your roots or returning to your hometown eventually.”
Amber Hayes penned the song with Bill DiLuigi and JP Williams years ago. It wasn’t until after she was selected for the new HGTV series, Home Town, in which the hosts, husband-and-wife team, Ben and Erin, did a complete overhaul and renovation on Hayes newly purchased home in Laurel, Mississippi that Hayes brought the song to life and recorded the track. Reflecting the purpose behind the show, “My Hometown” is featured during Hayes’ episode, airing on HGTV on May 23.
Additionally, Amber Hayes will once again host her popular show, Sweet Sunday Singing with Amber Hayes and Friends on Sunday, June 11 at the Listening Room, starting at 9 a.m. Hayes, Jeff Bates, Williams Honor, The Runaway Hamsters and more are set to perform.
